6 Under-Prioritized Tips
for Staying Healthy as You Age

How to maintain a good health well into your age

Getting older means more life transitions, potential job switches, and physical body changes. Though you might not understand everything that’s going on with your body, there are some steps you can take to ensure you maintain your good health well into old age. Here are six tips for staying healthy as you age.

As the nature and the old age take their toll on your bodies, it becomes more important
to take certain steps to staying healthy as you age and resist the changes for a while longer.

1. Don’t neglect yourself

This seems pretty obvious, but just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you should forego an annual doctor’s visit. Maintain a schedule where you keep up with regular doctor, dentist, and optometrist visits. If you’re someone who experiences constant back pain or has another underlying health issue, be sure to consult with the right specialist on a regular basis.

2. Get the sleep that your body needs

Healthy adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep every night. To achieve this, try to keep a consistent bedtime routine—this could look like taking a nice, long bath, reading your favorite novel, meditating, or practicing deep breathing. Whatever you do, try to avoid staring at your cell phone or watching TV right before bed. The blue light given off by these screens can impact your ability to sleep and lower your overall sleep quality.

3. Eat a well-balanced diet

As you age, your relationship with food may change along with your body. Loading up on veggies, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and low-fat dairy products can help you live longer and protect against diseases like heart disease, cancer, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s. As you plan out your meals each week, limit your intake of saturated fats, sugar, and alcohol—these can decrease energy levels and negatively impact your mood.

4. Exercise on a daily basis

Getting 30 minutes of exercise each day can improve heart health, control your weight, and boost your mood. Try to fit in a walk in the morning or right after work. If this seems like too much at once, break your walk up into 10-minute strolls. You could also try other forms of exercise like yoga, cycling, or swimming.

5. Do monthly checks on your home

Mold, carbon monoxide, and elevated sound levels can all have a direct impact on your health. Every month, check your bathroom, basement, garage, attic, and any other damp spaces for mold growth. If you find burst pipes or minor leaks, get them fixed as soon as possible to prevent more mold and mildew from forming. Additionally, install carbon monoxide detectors in your home to prevent a carbon monoxide leak and potential poisoning. Regarding elevated sound levels, get any faulty appliances fixed, buy a white noise machine, and get a sound-absorbing rug to help with sound remediation in each room.

6. Keep your home environment clean

Over time, clutter and junk can build up—this is especially true as we age. Though there are some items that are well worth keeping, others can be donated or thrown away. Clearing out clutter is especially important as you age because the it can have negative effects on your mental health. Not only can clutter cause stress and anxiety, but it can also lead to feelings of isolation, foster negative thoughts, and lower concentration levels. To limit the amount of clutter that comes into your home, set a time each week to throw away junk mail, put items back where they belong, and pick up belongings from the floor.
